12 Network Shows Most Likely To Be Cancelled


Recommended Posts

FOX

Almost Human â€” The ratings aren’t terrible but they’re not good enough to justify the expense of the drama. Fox is already airing episodes out of order, and the netowrk hasn’t ordered any additional scripts. Monday’s already a tough night, and with ratings sinking on Almost Human, it’s unlikely to return.

Raising Hope â€” The ratings are absolutely dismal on Friday nights. Our only hope is that the lure of syndication money might save Raising Hope, but it’s very, very unlikely.

Enlisted â€” My favorite new sitcom of the season, Enlisted has been terrific through five episodes. Unfortunately, they introduced it on a Friday night, and with ratings as bad as they are, it’s unlikely that Fox will even give it a shot in a better time slot to see if it can pick up any new viewers. It’s a lost cause, and this one hurts.

Dads â€” Dads is all but officially cancelled. Fox ended the series run last week after shortening its order, and has no future plans for it. It had bad ratings and the critics hated it. The only reason to bring it back might be to keep Seth MacFarlane happy, but he’s got movie money now, so what does he care?

Rake â€” The Greg Kinnear “quirky” legal drama never found an audience on Thursday nights, despite is American Idol lead-in, and for good reason: It’s not very good. It’s another high-profile bomb. I wish they’d given this time slot to Enlisted.

 

CBS

Intelligence â€” The Josh Holloway procedural gets OK ratings, and if it were on another network, it might survive. But not on CBS, where they expect far more old people to tune in. Critics abandoned it after the pilot, and it has no champions to defend it at the network.

Hostages â€” The limited series run with Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott will almost certainly be limited to one season.

ABC

The Neighbors â€” The Friday night graveyard takes another victim. Most of us were surprised this show even made it through the first season before being cancelled. It was actually not bad, either.

Trophy Wife â€” Another painful loss, Trophy Wife is bleeding viewers after The Goldbergs, which itself isn’t getting exactly stellar ratings. It’s a shame, too, because Trophy Wife is one of the better sitcoms on network television, and I’m going to miss Malin Akerman on the small screen next year (save for Children’s Hospital).

Super Fun Night â€” The Rebel Wilson series had a lot of hype leading into the season, and I had heard from a fan that it had gotten better (I checked out a recent episode, and I beg to differ). It hasn’t held on to its Modern Family lead-in well at all. Super Fun Night is a goner.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland â€” The Once Upon a Time spin-off on Thursdays opened with very soft ratings, and it hasn’t improved. Crash and burn.

Killer Women â€” The fact that ABC reduced the short order to an even shorter order did not bode well for this show. The fact that it was reviled by critics didn’t help.

Betrayal â€” It hasn’t been officially cancelled yet, but there was already some soft murmurings of an online petition to save the series after its finale last month. Those murmurings won’t be enough to save it.

 

NBC

Believe it or not, NBC has already cancelled its low-rated series: The Michael J. Fox ShowSean Saves the World, and Welcome to the Family. With Parks and Recreation already renewed, and Community liked to be renewed, there’s nothing left for NBC to cancel.

I heard good things about "Almost Human" hope it doesn't get axed.

I like Almost Human but I can see how unless they get nice ratings it's hard to support what they spend to make the show.  I saw the pilot of Enlisted and enjoyed it but do think they stuck it in a tough slot.  Dads was horrible and it seemed like they were trying way too hard from the get go, Intelligence was just dumb 3 minutes in and I think their main hope was Sawyer fans (women) tuning in and if The Neighbors is the one I'm thinking of I don't know how it made it through the first 5 minutes let alone an entire season.

The only thing that surprised me from that article is NBC renewing Community.  I love Community but that show has been dicked around by NBC for a long time and now they pretty much just put it on whenever they feel like it.  I'll still keep watching however.  Reminds me of the same thing they did with Chuck.

 

As for Fox, they are terrible at promoting shows or keeping them on air for long periods of time.  They too like to put shows in random time slots and then wonder why the ratings suck so bad.  I guess more room for another Simon Cowell or Chef Ramsey show.

There are just way too many good options on cable (and online) for network TV to compete. The networks really need to reinvent themselves. 

 

yep...at this point we have almost stopped watching any network shows outside of a few we have for years. Out of the new 2013-14 season we started watching a few new shows, then we said...well, we have it on DVR and we'll binge watch it in a few weeks...and I recently just went and deleted the dvr backlog a week or two ago. Networks have a huge disadvantage, 20+ episodes a season is just too damn much, especially when you can't take the chances on content and "appropriateness" like you can on cable or streaming.

 

 

If we could start ala carting a few channels (like Fx, AMC, FoxSports, etc.) we'd probably start ditching our cable. That's why you see companies spending so much friggen money on live/event tv.

Can't say I watched any of these more than once. Just wait for and watch  my favs (like AI). Didn't I read X-factor was canceled?

 

 

Waiting for Under the Dome 2 to start. (CBS)

 

And that new series Resurrection looks interesting. (ABC)

 

 

That Sharlene woman should have left The Bachelor a long time ago!!  Poor Juan.
